First I will show you my card for Jeanne and then give a very brief explanation as to why I made this particular card for Jeanne.
See those cheery colors...I bet if you look back at Jeanne's blog you would find pink, orange, yellow and green over and over on her cards. I know she also loves purple, but when I think of Jeanne...these are the colors I remember. The leaves? Not exactly Fall colors, but once again, there is a reason behind why I chose them. I loaned Jeanne the Leaf Print stamps and dies from PTI and when I did, she warned me that she was very "tough" on dies. I laughed that off and got the package in the mail to her. A few weeks later Jeanne wrote me to say my stamps were on their way back to me, but the dies...didn't make it. Apparently they were mangled and bent from Jeanne's less than gentle touch with her die cutting machine and replacement dies were being ordered. We have laughed about that more than once lately, and I knew I had to use my newly replaced dies on Jeanne's card.
The sentiment on my card is from Lil Inkers, Snarky Sentiments and is my very favorite from that set. So true, don't you think?
I am hoping Jeanne has a great birthday...I will be thinking of her today and so will a whole bunch of other blog friends. Here is a link to the other people attending Jeanne's birthday party:
